Dr Beeching's Axe 50 Years On

£6.99

Available in Stock

The report prepared by Richard Beeching in 1963 on the future of the railways was a turning point for the network, the swingeing cuts proposed now seen to have been powerfully influenced by the road-building lobby. Although a few routes escaped the axe, most were gone by the end of the decade. This nostalgic book explores every line that was closed as a result of the report, with brief histories and photographs of the routes while still operational.
